A new way of advertising in Kiev subway: it's not a movie in the window - it's many single paintings written on the wall of the metro tunnel, so when the train moves at a high speed the pictures change very fast and it seems that there is a movie showing out for the passengers. See video below:

    Very cool technique, at Zurich Airport they have the same.

    Does it blink? I think, it should – otherwise you wouldn’t see it as a movie.

    It is not any novalty. In the Budapest metro you could see such ads years ago.

      That’s notthe point of its complexity. It’s ridiculously simple. Its not about CAN you do it. It’s just interesting to note that they DID do it.

    Very cool… I’ve seen some of these types of signs in Washington, DC also.

    My fear is that I’m reminded of the movie “Minority Report” – there’s a scene where the main character is running through a mall, and all the advertisments (which are posted absolutely everywhere) start yelling out to him…

    I’m afraid we’re getting close to that time in real life… : (

    saw similar stuff 5 years ago in Budapest metro. Not at fancy though it was in neon, i think.

    There was also in Bucharest a similar type of advertisment in the subway. I haven’t seen one though for several months so i guess it isn’t very efficient. I know the fact that the subway train must mantain a certain speed for the eye to see the ad fluently

    They did this in 1977 in the Montreal Metro, which runs on rubber tires!!!!!
